Clouds

We had some rainy weather last weekend that finally subsided Sunday afternoon.  I took a walk at the Desert Botanical Gardens when the rain stopped and I saw some amazing clouds in the sky.  Here is a big, white one between two of the Chihuly towers at the entrance to the garden.  The palm fronds you see at the bottom center of this photo are from a real plant but they blend in perfectly with these glass beauties.

That is a really nice picture framed with the green.

The way you framed it is splendid. Which do I like more...the Chihuly or the clouds? It's a toss-up!

Kathy said...

A beautiful day! And a beautiful photo!

The sky after a rain can be dramatic, as you have shown.

Great shot! Wouldn't you like to have those in your yard to look out at all the time?

Lovely shot, those clouds look menacing. It's nice to see some blue sky!

The weather did make for some wonderful clouds. We had several nice rain showers. Glad you were able to get out and take a walk at the Gardens.

You have several good things here, Sharon. The deep blue skies, the billowing clouds, the Chihuly sculptures and the hint of a real palm. Nice one.
